Good for you Amazon. It is important that we all participate in every way to stop the spread of hate and racism. Wish you would ban all Trump support items for the same reason

Where is Trump gonna get his Christmas gifts now

Supply vs. demand.

...they didn’t already? Tf?

Get all that Charlie Chaplin crap outa here. Un Nazi the world.

Now is Amazon the Goebbels of the XXI century?

Adolf Hitler in 1933 could only rise to power with the backing of the German upper industrial class. No right wing mass movement will be able to repeat this error. It was a: once and never again. Mass movement raising to power since then are the exclusive property of THE LEFT!

They broke one of Bertrand Russell's 10 commandments of critical thinking. 'Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you'...ban a book, even a book of lies, and more people will want to read it.

A ridiculous decision. I bought mine in the Netherlands in 1980. I read it maybe four times since then. And it STILL didn't turn me in to a Nazi supporter. Those who suggest hat MK is a guide to another Nazi takeover for sure don't know what they're talking about(1/2)

Abe_GGKM Worked for an independent. they might be gone but not the spirit. I might hate the book someone asked me to order; however, I order it. I dont have the right to dictate how others think. despite how wrong I think they are.

Modern day Fahrenheit 451? One of the reasons Nazi's suck is book burning.

Every fascist is enthusiastic about censorship.

Didn’t the nazis burn books?

Burn the books and it will be as if the message never existed.

amazon How about taking anti Christian and anti Islamic texts down as well? How about that? Fairness for all and across the board.

Surprised it took this long.

It's about time.
